Understanding the Cross

If we were to have a discussion about the cross of Christ I wonder how that discussion would go? Would we talk of anything more that the two pieces of wood the Christ was stretched out upon, nail by his hands and feet and died?

Most think Christ was a meek holy man. He was not God. He did not have anything to do with politics. That He came only to die on the cross to provide the redemption for humanity in order to accept Him and receive everlasting life.

Christ Came to Teach

We have already discussed in a previous post that Christ came in flesh to teach humanity how to open the heat-brain to the mind-brain in order to allow the heart-brain (spirit) to control the human body's actions and thoughts. This was the state of man before sin. Before sin man was spiritual being in a physical body. After sin man became a physical being which housed a spiritual being and had to figure out how to allow the mind-brain to reconnect to the heart-brain. Christ came in the flesh to teach humanity how to return to the state of a spiritual being living in a physical body.

We are told that Christ taught in parables. In the New Testament, 55 parables are included in Luke, Mark and Matthew. Jesus used the parables extensively in his three-year teaching ministry. ... When asked by the disciples why he used parables, Jesus said that he would fulfill the words of the prophet and reveal the mysteries from the foundation of the world. Matthew 13:11-14 "11 He answered and said unto them, Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. 12 For whosoever hath, to him shall be given, and he shall have more abundance: but whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. 13 Therefore speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing they hear not, neither do they understand. 14 And in them is fulfilled the prophecy of Esaias, which saith, By hearing ye shall hear, and shall not understand; and seeing ye shall see, and shall not perceive:"

Wow! We have discussed the seven elements of the Keys of the Kingdom. What do we see in Matthew 13. Christ is telling His disciples how they have been given the mysteries of the kingdom and the spiritual senses that allow them to coordinate the understanding of them. Christ knew that only those that were of spiritual being of God would be able to know the mysteries and those of the serpent bloodline would not.

Christ Came for Confronting Government

Now Christ was not only a meek holy man but He was a warrior of God - He was God. John 2:13-16 "13 And the Jews' passover was at hand, and Jesus went up to Jerusalem. 14 And found in the temple those that sold oxen and sheep and doves, and the changers of money sitting: 15 And when he had made a scourge of small cords, he drove them all out of the temple, and the sheep, and the oxen; and poured out the ch
